Around the World in 80 Dishes

IMG_1147

The book for this review was provided with compliments of BookDepository.co.uk, however all images and opinions are my own. Debbie Loftus’ Date and Coffee Loaf HELP. There’s no more room on my bookshelf. It’s gotten to the point where I’ve now starting stacking books on top of each other and cramming them into the tightest […]

Japanese-style fruit & cream sponge cake

IMG_6301

Lack of sleep, lack of time, lack of company with other human adults. My life has been rather lacking in a number of ways over the past few months. Mind, this is completely self-inflicted – I knew that getting a puppy would be tough and time-consuming work. I just wish I remembered how *much* hard […]

Spiced sweet pumpkin loaf

Change is a-comin’. It’s no longer pitch black when I leave the house for work in the mornings. I’m no longer sleeping with three blankets, and I’ve actually lost track of how long it’s been since I’ve had to throw water on the windshield of my car to defrost the ice in a hurry. Everything […]

Stunning Sour Cream & Rhubarb Cake

Add the fact that getting proper Canadian maple syrup here is a rather costly experience (I pay almost $10 for a 1 cup bottle), and […]

The Perfect Chocolate Mud Cake

A good chocolate cake recipe is absolutely invaluable – it is the easiest flavour to turn to when making a cake to be enjoyed by a number of people with different tastes. You could say that chocolate is something that brings most people together. My standard chocolate cake recipe is fantastic – easy to make, […]

Lemon & Poppyseed Cake with a Yoghurt Glaze

There is something about lemon desserts that I find utterly irresistible. I know some people loathe sweet citrus combinations, but personally I find that the tart acidity of lemon in a cake or a tart helps to balance the tooth-aching sweetness of the dish. And don’t get me started on lemon zest. If I had my […]

Peanut Butter & Dark Choc Torte w/ Strawberry Sauce

Those who know me know that while I quite enjoy chocolate, I don’t quite have the sort of intimate, loving relationship with it that many of my female (and male!) friends have. In fact, I can go weeks or even a month or two without having a morsel of chocolate pass between my lips… However, […]
